bareMinerals More Than Meets the Eye 8-piece Collection
the mineral veil new color should be xterminated.. it's too dark for a fair skin, nothing worth keeping in this set, going back
I purchased the medium color set. I am fair skinned but, like to tan in the summer. I only used the Prime Time once since it is SPF 30 and I normally use SPF 15. It applied well and left my skin feeling smooth. The original foundation was okay. I do not particularly like powder/brush foundation but, it was usable. Not great coverage. The Elation face glow is one of my favorite items in the set. I use it all over and can use as a natural looking blush. the Elation lip stain is pretty much a bust for me. Went on like a light gloss on my lips. Had to use another stain product under it to get effective color. The 5 in 1 cream eyeshadow is a major disappointment. I don't use glittery eyeshadows and this was glittery - not shimmery. I prefer matte. Actual flakes of glitter dusted down my face from this product. I use natural brushes and have my own Kabuki and blush brush so I did not try to the brushes. I don't normally use powder per se but, I did try the product that came in the set. Okay. Probably won't use much.
It is true the brushes are terrible. However I love each product. The color correcting primer is thinner than the original but it does a better job priming. The face color for fairly light was exact as the past pot. I freaking ADORE the advanced mineral veil and wish that senhora offered it. The bb eye cream works more as a primer, and it really helps the my eyehadow stick to my lids.I love the all over color. Light rosy nice. My brother and coworker both said I was glowing radiantly. I am 8 months pregnant and this is the first time I heard that.
Not very good
The brushes are always AWFUL in the bare minerals kits on QVC. I don't think I'm going to buy the kits with brushes anymore. The foundation color is WRONG. I've always purchased 'Fairly Light' from Ulta or Sephora and I got something more along the lines of 'Light'. The blush and primers are great.
Not as pleased as I thought I would be
The mineral veil came in a color instead of the original, and it makes me look too dark. The brushes are kind of flimsy. The lipstick looks like the color of child's crayon or cheap peach lipstick. The eyeshadow is so light you can barely tell I have it on. I am using it as a primer.The primer, blush, and original makeup are great. Not sure this kit is worth the money. I am only ending up using three of the items. I would not recommend this one. I love their makeup, but it seems like cheap products for high price.
Excellent package but...
The products are an excellent deal for the price! Been using Bare Minerals since 2008. In 2010 I tried a less expensive mineral cosmetic line and was not pleased at all and returned to Bare Minerals. I love the texture, choice of colors, the way the products look on my complexion! This entire package is such a great deal! I'm on auto-delivery so I can get the same pricing and package. My only complaint is the brushes! The brushes shed badly! I have received brushes from bareminerals.com several times throughout my years of use and never have received such inferior quality as the ones in this package! The brushes should be upgraded! I am still very pleased with Bare Minerals and the brushes are a small issue for me.

BB 5in1 mineral veil-permanent please

Just got my second set
I like this set so much I just got my second set (one for home and one to go). All of these products are in the neutral zone color-wise. You control the tone by the amount of each that you use. This is an excellent price and well worth every penny. Have not been a Prime Time user in the past, but am really liking this one. It says neutralizing and it does even out the red spots and dark areas really well. It smooths on evenly. I found by rinsing the sprayer with water after each use helps decrease the sudden squirts a lot. I am also liking the" finishing" Mineral Veil. I apply with a feather light brush and it really does put the finishing touch on the whole face.
I like everything about this set except the all over brush. It is useless. I gave it to my daughter as a toy. The large blush brush is nice and works great w/ the cheek color. The primer doesn't come out of the pump well. I think it has to do with the mousse-like consistency. I have to shake it well or unscrew the pump and get product with my finger. I like the original primer the best, but this is fine. I use it daily. I like the tinted mineral veil as well. The eye shadow base is nice, but it does cause a crease by the end of the day.
Try In Store 1st
I don't like how the finish looks later on... Uneven and caked on look in some areas. I tried bare minerals many years ago and thought I'd try it again. Remember now why I stopped using it. Going to return... Loved the lipstick color in the kit though that's why I gave it 2 stars.
Offer items separately
I really love this collection. I wish that some of these items were offered individually. I went to my local BE boutique to pick up another lip stain and it is not yet available. My lip stain is almost gone but I have lots left of the other items so I don't want another collection and that is the only way to get the sip stain at present. Please consider making items available individually that are only available on QVC. My only complaint is with the brushes. They are not up to par with other brushes from BE but my old ones are still in good shape.
great kit & value
I LOVE THE MAKEUP!! I dislike the bushes. The brushes are poor quality.
